Bernard Tomic says Nick kyrgios is a good player but he is better. Tomic and Kyrgios played at the Kooyong Classic two years ago and Tomic claimed a straight-set win. “Obviously Nick is a good player, probably top six or seven servers in the world.
Obviously beat him in Kooyong 6-3 6-4," Tomic said on Instagram. “Because I train with him I pick where he’s serving and I know where he’s at so that style doesn’t bother me”. Asked who was better in their prime, Tomic replied with a thumbs up and a cheeky grin: “I still am”.
Kyrgios responded to “BT” on his Instagram story, acknowledging Tomic did beat him once, “where people play exhibitions”.
“But to say that he’s better? I have more titles,” he said.
“I don’t think he has any big scalp to his name, no Rafa, no Federer no Djokovic. To say that he’s better than me, it’s a bit of a stretch.
“But we all know what BT’s capable of and I wish him the best.
“I ain’t no jealous person, I want success for everyone — so BT, we know what you are capable of brother, let’s see it.”
Tomic also revealed his father and coach, John Tomic, would not be part of his 2022 Australian Open team, but refrained from elaborating why.
